Your Apple Watch and your iPhone are going to get smarter in how they work together, with Watch OS 2 and iOS 9 streamlining security, privacy, and app data delays. The changes build on Apple Watch’s new native app support: where now the apps themselves run on the iPhone and just tell the wearable what to display, with the arrival of Watch OS 2 both the UI and the backend code will be running on the wrist. Not only will that mean greater independence when you’re away from your iPhone, it also paves the way to a more trusting and efficient relationship when the two gadgets are together.

Now, though, the waiting is over. The preorders are arriving. And Apple Watch needs to prove to us it’s worth a spot on our arm.

Many thousands of words have been spilled today, and all trying to tell you the same thing: whether the new Apple Watch is worthy of space on your wrist. Apple's first attempt in the wearable space, the smartwatch promises to bring the best of your iPhone out to just under your cuff: notifications, mini-apps, and even weird communications tools like sharing your heartbeat.
